Hawks release Solomon, likely to add guard

The Hawks waived forward Richard Solomon on Saturday.

The move trims the training camp roster to 19 players. However, the Hawks are likely to add a guard to the roster soon. They are thin at the guard position with Dennis Schroder nursing an ankle injury and Jarrett Jack being brought along slowly from a torn ACL. The Hawks had an excess of big men in camp knowing that Tiago Splitter was returning from hip surgery.

Solomon played 2:40 of the Hawks’ open scrimmage and had one rebound. The 6-foot-7 forward signed a non-guaranteed contract with the Hawks last month for a training camp invitation.
